Selecting brick for all or part of your home's construction comes with many advantages, among them: fire protection, wind protection, durability, noise absorption, sustainability, beauty and increased property value. In fact, there aren’t many reasons NOT to choose brick. Higher upfront cost is a reality, but the decision to build with brick will more than pay for itself in a few ways: Energy Cost Savings | Ease of Maintenance | Lower Insurance Costs
Even though you can see it when you close your eyes, choosing the materials to build your dream home or space is difficult. That's why The Courtyard at East Texas Brick was created. You can amble through our large-scale displays of today's most popular brick and stone until you find the color, shape, style and application that are perfect for your project.
Brick, as opposed to siding, stabilizes the internal temperature of a home by delaying the movement of heat through walls. In the summer, brick keeps the heat out, and in the winter, it keeps the heat in. Year round, it will keep your utility bills lower.
Brick homes typically require only an occasional spray down with a hose. Over time, say after 25 years, loose or chipped bricks may need to be repaired or replaced, but brick won't decay or require painting and is resistant to termites.
Brick's characteristic fire, weather and insect-resistance can help lower your homeowner’s insurance rates.
East Texas Brick calculates the estimated cost of brick by first determining the square footage of the surfaces that will be covered in brick. Then the areas of window and door openings are subtracted. That adjusted square footage is then multiplied by the number of bricks per square foot based on the brick selected.
The number of bricks per square foot varies based on the size of brick-Modular, Queen or King. The larger the brick, the fewer are required to cover one square foot of space.
When East Texas Brick estimates brick cost, they consider that every bricklayer works differently. We stress that our estimates are just that, and try not to make assumptions that might skew your budget considerations.
